    Trash and recycling pick up days are Tuesday or Friday, depending on the village. Residents are asked to ensure trash and recycling containers are put away at the end of each trash day. Empty containers are light and tend to fall over causing road hazards on windy days and also take away from the curb appeal within the community.
    Trash and recycling containers must be covered and stored in designated locations. Containers can be put out after 8 p.m. on the evening before pick-up day and must be removed from the curb and returned to storage areas by 8 p.m. the day of pick up. Contact the Maintenance Office at (913) 651-3838 if trash pickup is missed.
    In addition, recycling services are available for paper, glass, cardboard, plastics and aluminum cans. There are several recycling containers around post including the recycling collection point at 740 W. Warehouse Road.
    Household hazardous waste items should never be placed in trash bins. Household hazardous waste can be dropped off weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the basement of 810 McClellan Ave. There are also outside drop-off cabinets that can be used after hours.
    Household hazardous waste includes automotive products, home improvement products, paint, varnish, paint thinner, paint stripper, caulk and adhesives, pesticides, household cleaners, batteries, cosmetics, lighter fluid, and arts and crafts materials. Products should be kept in their original containers, when possible.
    E-waste is also accepted at the collection point, including computers, cell phones, cameras, modems, monitors, televisions, printers, game systems and general electronics.
    Used motor oil and antifreeze can be dropped off at the Auto Craft Center at 911 McClellan Ave. or at an off-post garage.

    Coloring contest

    Yard of the Month
    Page 2 of 2 - The Yard of the Month program recognizes residents who spruce up and decorate their yards. Each month through October, Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities representatives patrol villages on post to select three yards to be “Yard of the Month.”
    Winners receive a $25 gift card and a Yard of the Month certificate, as well as recognition in the FLFHC Newsletter.
    Utilities tip
    Running a full dishwasher uses less water than washing the dishes by hand. Let dishes air-dry to save even more on utilities.
    Watch for more announcements on Facebook, followed by a One-Call Now e-mail message with event details. Don’t forget to follow FLFHC on Twitter. Visit the FLFHC website at www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com for downloadable forms and other useful information.
